HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Thornhill and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Thornhill property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension on the property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does give a thorough analysis of the Thornhill property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Are there any reasons for doing a full structural survey rather than a HomeBuyer Report if buying a dilapidated end of terrace cottage?

Structural Surveys are no longer available as a newer format classified as the Building Survey is now available. This is now the correct choice of home survey when buying an unconventional house - such as a neglected Thornhill house. A Building Survey provides critical information concerning the homes construction materials in conjunction with any important technical details, shortly after a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings.

Conservatory

In a Thornhill HomeBuyer Report, what are common a green light rating defects for conservatory and porches?

Condition rating one indicates that no repairs are necessary. Nevertheless, the surveyor may still recommend that regular upkeep is carried out. Porches, conservatories and similar elements of the property's construction are included here. Building regulations and issues relating to correct planning approval are considered (e.g. is it a conservatory, an extension, or a 'sun room'?) should also be reported on. Contact between the conservatory skirting and the soil is an example.

Conservation area

Will there be any problems we would need to be wary of if buying a house in Thornhill near a conservation area ?

There are thousands official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by the local council.

A Building Surveyors must possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local factors and the relation they have with the home. Property Prices will be significantly higher which is down to them retaining original features.

RICS surveyors are expected tell you if the home could be in a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Thornhill Homebuyer Report will suggest additional enquiries are carried out by the conveyancing solicitor. Unapproved modifications that do not have Local Authority approval may also be reported in the Thornhill survey but these are really more a investigated by the solicitor.
